sushi competition note from lmurphy: SushiMasters, the first CA state-wide sushi competition. http://www.sushimasters.com

sushi suggestion for tampa and a nice word from dan: Sushi Ninja in Tampa/Brandon/Valrico. Even though the little Sushi Bar is located in Valrico, Florida it's only a couple of miles from the Tampa and Brandon City limits. This little place is a diamond in the rough and MIMI is the chef/owner and runs a tight ship. The fish is always discriminatingly FRESH! I know that's not a real word but it fits! The rolls are great, the sashimi is wonderful and service is even better. Great Great Great. Sushi Ninja. 887 E Bloomingdale Ave, Brandon, FL. (813) 662-3377. Thanks for allowing us to tell you about this little place. We have found some wonderful places on your website. Keep up the great work. - 4/26/2006

a recommendation for toronto from anonymous: FYI, there is a new sushi bar, Cafe Michi at 1802 Sheppard Ave., Scarborough, Ontario (sw corner of Sheppard and Pharmacy). 416-490-9688.

nyc suggestion from hsnycbm: Out of the hundreds of restaurants offering sushi in New York City, I am fortunate to live within a block of Sushi of Gari at 402 East 78th Street, between York and First Avenues. Phone: 212-517-5340. With a 27 rating from Zagat, reservations are a must because it's always packed. Everything is of the highest quality and exquisitely presented. Eat at the bar and let the chefs surprise and delight you with their inspired creations. I haven't tried their recently opened branch on the Upper West Side, but it's probably excellent, too.

northern ca. suggestions from tekdiving: My wife and I have two sushi bars we love. They are Samurai Sushi in Rancho Cordova, CA and Mikuni in Sacramento. There is a smaller place in Elk Grove called Shogun. It is closer so when we don't wish to drive we go to Shogun. All of these places are predominantly Korean in style in that they use various sauces (spicy or creamy sauces), mixed fish salads and fish presented various ways. They also make great seared tuna and salmon entrees.

chuck has sent in a note about a good one for or: We visited a different Sushi Bar in Medford, OR; Shiki Four Seasons. As it is advertised as both a Chinese and Japanese restaurant we were quite apprehensive about trying it. Much to our surprise, they have a nice Sushi Bar and the Sushi is excellent! The sushi chef is not Japanese, however after discussions with him, we learned the reason he is so good, is that he trained for some time in Japan. We were quite happy and satisfied with Shiki Four Seasons and definitely will return on visits to Medford.

sushi at the shop-rite note from BGOR: Lincoln Park, NJ - best value of sushi is at Mr.Sushi Restaurant in the Shop-Rite shopping center.  All-you-can eat for $20.00 pp. All dishes prepared fresh while you wait.  Includes miso soup and salad with ginger dressing.

a favorite in oregon from drjames: I travel a lot and have spent the last 15 years checking out sushi places from L.A. to Toyko and around the world, but one place will always be my favorite. "SYUN" in the sleepy town of Hillsboro, Oregon is simply amazing. The atmosphere is warm and the food is fantastic. I was very impressed with the skill of the sushi chefs including one Gaijin chef that apparently studied in Japan. His skill level is incredible as I recall back to the small Japanese Sayori fish I watched him sashimi..... The quality and variety of fish are the best I've had since Tsukiji, Tokyo.. In my book Syun is the best kept secret this side of Tokyo.

some fun sushi in sf from misskoral: Shimo in San Francisco is the best kept secret of the bay area when it comes to sushi. The largest, freshest, best prepared selections of tuna, salmon and all the standards, and at the best price. Dino is the regular chef and takes great pride in his work and this restaurant blows all the others out of the water. 733 Taravel St., San Francisco, CA 94116, 415 564 8592. additional note: I'm confident you'll agree that Shimo is the best. I look forward to your opinion. The great thing about Shimo, and probably the reason the prices remain reasonable and there's always a seat, is that they're out of the way, and they don't have a website. And we want to keep it this way. ;-)  ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

a sushibar note for indiana from inanna_earthmother: I've been to quite a few sushi bars and restaurants, and I have to say that Hei Sei in West Lafayette, Indiana, is one of the best I've ever been to! The restaurant is tastefully decorated, the staff is fantastic and knowledgeable, the prices are $just right$, and the sushi is FANTASTIC! I'm becoming a regular there, and their sushi chef, Jose, is a wonderful guy. He loves for you to try sushi that you've never tried before, and is always making something for you to sample. The restaurant is always busy - I can only imagine how many people he has served - and yet he always remembers that I'm allergic to avocado, and always gives me something that he knows I can eat. Isn't that awesome? I'm not sure how long they've been there, but they do have a web page: http://www.heiseirestaurant.com/ It has all the information you need to get to the restaurant, along with their hours of operation and their phone number.

tip sheet article from time magazine mar 2005: Italian For Sushi- Sushi lovers on the left and right coasts are angling for a new kind of raw fish. Forget about wasabi-spiced slivers of yellowtail and soy-drenched toro; the buzz now is on crudo. Italian for "raw," crudo is spiked with robust Mediterranean flavors of garlic, citrus, tomato and fresh olive oil. Il Grano (Los Angeles; 310-477-7886) serves Maine scallops with candied lemon peel, and snapper with chard and poppy-seed dressing. Esca (New York; 212-564-7272), where crudo got its start in the United States, offers Spanish mackerel with muscat-steeped golden raisins. Seablue (Las Vegas; 702-891-3486) dishes out yellowtail "jack" with spicy shiitake mushrooms and ponzu sauce. And at Oliveto (Oakland, Calif; 510-547-5356), try the halibut with black truffles, Meyer lemon vinaigrette and bottarga. No chopsticks required. -tara weingarten

a great list of portland sushi from yu c: I live in the Portland, OR area, and we are blessed with several delicious sushi places and I am happy to give you my favorites: Sushi Cafe K. Great fish, very artfully displayed. My friend and I had a delicious Negisaba roll that was made into a triangular shape, very delicious. Great hamachi-kama as well! Restaurant Murata also delicious fish. I see many Japanese businessmen there, who often get uni-don. They have delicious maguro-natto, and a wide selection of dishes you don't find in other japanese restaurants such as okayu or chazuke. Shyun Izakaya (Hillsboro, OR a suburb of Portland) This place has okay sushi, but they are very well known for their kobachi and sake selection. My roomate from Tokyo ate there for the first time and more than once exclaimed "Chou natsukashii!". Hakata-mon (Beaverton, OR a suburb of Portland) A very homey Japanese place, they have delicious broiled Hokke and a wide variety of Kobachi and affordable as well.

a fugu note and a recommendation from kusa: As with any fish in Japanese cuisine there is a myriad of ways to prepare Fugu, but when people refer to the "sensations" this means its served as sashimi. The high cost usually precludes the notion of serving it as sushi/maki. The most common way that it is served is tempura style using whole small Fugus-still expensive but not as much as the sashimi plate. This was the way I ate it, and there was an effect of sorts more like the first time you gorge yourself on fresh red uni. You can tell a restaurant serves Fugu if there are images of fugu painted on the walls or fugu lanterns hanging from the eaves. There is one restaurant in Seattle, WA with a licensed chef. His name is Ken Yamamoto of Shiki Restaurant. http://www.shiki-sushi.com/shiki_home.htm

pjc has a tip for florida: Sumo Sushi in Coral Springs and Deerfield Beach Florida are awesome.

a sushi link request in los angeles sent in from newtonlee: Please kindly add Sushi Zawa's URL to your web page. Name: Sushi Zawa. Place: Los Angeles. URL: http://losangeles.sushizawa.com/

jc found an article about paper sushi in chicago: Homaro Cantu's maki look a lot like the sushi rolls served at other upscale restaurants: pristine, coin-size disks stuffed with lumps of fresh crab and rice and wrapped in shiny nori. They also taste like sushi, deliciously fishy and seaweedy. But the sushi made by Mr. Cantu, the 28-year-old executive chef at Moto in Chicago, often contains no fish. It is prepared on a Canon i560 inkjet printer rather than a cutting board. He prints images of maki on pieces of edible paper made of soybeans and cornstarch, using organic, food-based inks of his own concoction. He then flavors the back of the paper, which is ordinarily used to put images onto birthday cakes, with powdered soy and seaweed seasonings. Moto. 945 W. Fulton Market Ave. Chicago IL 312-491-0058.
